The Australian Open is held annually in Melbourne Park and is the only tennis Grand Slam event to be hosted in the southern hemisphere each year.

Melbourne, Australia, December 11, 2011 --( For two weeks this coming January hotels in Melbourne city centre can expect to be busier than usual as the Australian Open tennis tournament heads into town.

All the big names including Djokovic, Nadal and Federer will be slugging it out on the hard courts from January 16 to January 29 2012, with tens of thousands of fans expected to arrive in the city to enjoy the fun.

Online hotel room comparison site advises visitors to Melbourne in January to make the smart move and book their accommodation well in advance.

The Australian Open is one of the country's largest sporting events and together with Wimbledon, the French Open and the US Open forms tennis's "Grand Slam." This year's Australian Open offers a massive $25 million in total prize money. Current reigning champions Novak Djokovic and Kim Clijsters will be in Melbourne this year seeking to defend their titles.

Our advice to travellers is to book your places to stay well in advance of arriving if you are likely to be in Melbourne around that time."
